Gus Grissom

MARK! End of burn.

Hawaii CapCom

Right. Mark end of burn. Good show.

John Young

We timed that a minute and 48 seconds.

Hawaii CapCom

Give us your IVI readings.

Gus Grissom

IVI's: Fore-Aft 0, Left was 1, Up was 2.

Gus Grissom

That was the end of burn.

Hawaii CapCom

Okay, and how did your attitudes look?

Gus Grissom

Attitudes were right on, plus or minus 2 or 3°.

Hawaii CapCom

Okay, they look good on the ground.

Gus Grissom

Now we can go to REENTRY. Right?

John Young

Okay, I've got 9:29 on the TR.

Gus Grissom

Oh! Give me another.

Gus Grissom

I'll give you one at 19. Okay?

John Young

Okay, and the propellant source pressure is 1500.

Gus Grissom

We had indicated 22 percent when we got done, Neil.

Hawaii CapCom

20 percent. Rog?

Hawaii CapCom

Okay.

John Young

Source pressure is 1500, source temperature 60-50, I mean. And the RCS-both rings on. Antenna okay. On REENTRY. Heaters off. Quantity Read Switch off.

Gus Grissom

Let's see, did we get all of this?

John Young

OAMS power to ATTITUDE, controller stow, attitude PULSE, computer to REENTRY.

Gus Grissom

Now we're lined up good.

John Young

Okay, and the retro load is initialized now, because I called addresses 10 and 11 out of the computer.

Gus Grissom

Now, don't go out of Reentry mode.

John Young

Okay, but I don't think it would make any difference, as long as we go back. Okay — platform — rate — computer to REENTRY — RATE COMMAND — roll gyro off.

John Young

Platform is ORBITAL RATE — No.

John Young

Retro power—ARM.

Gus Grissom

Not now. At TR-5, you mean?

John Young

Well, this is the 5-minute checklist.

Gus Grissom

Okay, well, we'll just — 7:20 now.

Gus Grissom

I haven't heard any of those squib isolation pyros fire yet. Have you?

John Young

Yes, I heard the ones on the pad fire.

Gus Grissom

Did you? I don't remember, I guess.

Gus Grissom

Oh, were you?

You have to listen for it to hear it.

Gus Grissom

Can't see inside.

John Young

It's bright, isn't it?

Gus Grissom

Well, the nose looks way down there, but that's about right.

Gus Grissom

Those thunderstorms would make it really tough coming in. You know?
